don't top downhillers like Peat, Gracia, Kircaldie, Carter, Sam Hill, Anne-Caro all use SRAM gripshifts? the last red bull rampage was dominated by the X.0 gen with most top guns, as spearheaded by Kyle Strait, all swearing by the grip shift (i think) And that goes for pro dirt jumpers/street and MTX too, and surprisingly, if you look at SRAM's website, a number of XC riders as well.
how bout the pro pinoy downhillers in general? i still see many rapidfire set-up esp on budget and mid-end rigs but they still kick serious a $$es nonetheless
is it compatible? shimano 105 on a mtb cassete i have riden frorider's rig its kinda matigas?
Yes compatible naman as long as your using both 9speed derailleur & cogset or both 8 speed combo. Im using one right now with a 42t chainring. Its kinda hard for long climbs but in the trail we regularly ride its only a short climb so i dont need the granny gear.

.... well shifters are just a matter of getting used to..... dsnt matter if its gripshift or rapid fire, getting accustomed and familiar with your shifters is important, it will affect: Shifting/gearing technique, hand position and handlebar control, steering and stability issues on the bike......
kahit si steve peat pa kalaban ko? kung di naman nya kabisado gamit nya may paglalagyan sakin yan... its that simple.... heheheh
